Tower Road really is just that, a gravel road. The best intrinsic feature is the scenic overlook off the right side of the loop. However, Lincoln, Plank, Fore and Tuscarora Trails weave in and out---That's where the real action is! Plank is beautifully scenic. Tuscarora has challenging rocks and elevation changes. The fire road that runs parallel to the left of Tower Road connects with Tuscarora north to take you over the rocks and down to Richmond Road / Cowans Gap State park. Plenty of parking off Aughwick Road. Happy trails!
